Main Aims

  • To provide clarification of possessive pronouns in the context of personal belongings

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of perso


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T will have 5 different personal belongings in realia and in pictures to elicit the items from the Ss. After the eliciting, T will instruct Ss to work in groups and discuss within themselves if there is any connection between these items. After hearing each groups guesses, T will give the answer by saying "I own all these items. They are under my possession." This will set the context to personal belongings.

Exposure (5-7 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

T will give H/Os to Ss relating to the context of the TL in fill in the blanks. This will allow Ss to understand the context through an exercise. In this activity, the first sentence explains the situation and for the second sentence Ss figure out which possessive pronoun goes in the blank.

Clarification (7-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

T will elicit the marker sentences from the Ss and write them on the WB from the lead-in. Whose phone is this? This is my phone. (Is this your phone? Yes) possessive adj. + noun This phone is mine. (Is this phone yours? Yes) Object + verb "be" + possessive pronoun This phone is my phone, not your phone. (Sounds repetitive) This phone is mine, not yours. (Sounds natural)

Controlled Practice (7-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

T will instruct the Ss to do the H/O exercises. This H/O deals with the question forms of such as "Whose bag is that?, Is that your boyfriend's car?, Are those my glasses?". It also includes answers in possessive adjectives and possessive pronouns. T will monitor the Ss and give FB and hot error correction if needed. T will first let the Ss check their answers within themselves and project the answers on the WB afterwards.

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

T will project different visuals and some of them will have Qs and answers written on them. In one group each ss has to ask and answer one question. This will collaborate the Ss in peer teaching and allow Ss to practice the TL.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

In this final lesson, Ss will get up and interact with someone from another group and ask questions about something they own or are wearing and answering in a conversation.
